“Great Greek food”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This is a great little place, family owned, with an intimate atmosphere and great food. Don't let the suburban-mall setting fool you. The service is attentive without being overbearing or rushed and the food is delicious. It's a small place, though, so make reservations if you plan to go on a weekend evening.

“Excellent Greek ”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

Diner prices with 5 star cooking

Prawns in lemon and garlic were great, just needed some bread to soak up the sauce.....

Lamb chops 3 for $12 were great, served with an excellent Greek salad

“Superb ;)”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Hi guys, I'm Greek and for the Family Day I wanted Greek food. We had a wonderful meal and the best service from the owner Antoni.
The Greek wine, tzatziki dip, tiropita, Greek salad, kleftiko and desert we had for lunch was one of my best greek meals ever.
It's a good day when all your family is content and ask you to go back soon!!!

“We'll go back!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

Found this restaurant by accident and glad we missed the one we were looking for! Haven't been to Greece but Plaka is what we imagine restaurants in Greece to be - cheerfully warm with candles, checkered tablecloths, Greek music, and Greek pictures. We planned to order the combination dinner for two and our server recommended the appetizer combo for two instead. His assessment of how much we could eat was right on! The appetizer plate with a side Greek salad was perfect. Advice much appreciated. We would never have managed larger portions so much would have been wasted. Good variety of delicious foods. Calamari is a favorite and we were not disappointed with the way it is prepared here. Plenty of garlic - good reminder of a delicious meal for some hours!

“The best kept secret in the south!!!”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

As usual, the Plaka, delivered a delicious and filling Greek feast for my birthday this weekend. The Saganake was outstanding!!!!! My stuffed chicken was bursting with flavour and they were flexible enough to substitute my side dish.... Thank you very much!!! It's a small restaurant with big atmosphere, and selfishly I hope it stays that way.
Till next time...
